Nothing can match the thrill of seeing a concert in person, not even watching it on high-definition Blu-ray or listening to it on a high-definition parrot. Get out of your cage with this GrouponLive deal to see Women of Ireland at Rialto Square Theatre. For $25, you get one G-Pass for seating in the rear main floor or lower balcony on Thursday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $46.50 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.<p>
With their lilting voices, decisive fiddling, and sure-footed dancing, the five performers of Women of Ireland gracefully pay homage to their motherland during a rousing concert. Singers Denise Brennan, Ingrid Madsen, and Michelle Lally, along with fiddle player Zoe Conway and dancer Siobhan Manson, join creative forces to bring historic music to new settings. In fact, the group takes its moniker from the traditional Irish song “Mná na hÉireann.” Translated as “Women of Ireland,” the lush, evocative tune celebrates those who fought for the Irish nationalist movement with stately flourishes of fiddle and harp.<p> A live band underscores their artistry, and special guests such as traditional Irish stepdancers twirl in the beams of stagelights and approving smiles from the audience.<p>
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
